Crewing Experience:

Yes. Consider myself an "amateur" with some experience. Have own sailboat (26 ft Searle) and have done some sailing to Stradbroke island, Moreton island, Peel. Did 18 months of regular Thursday night sailing plus weekend regattas in Tampa, Florida. Also crewed on a 100 mile race from Tampa to Fort Myers, Florida. Primarily sailed on a Carrera 290 there as pit crew. Occasional main / jib / spin trim. Bareboat chartered a 34ft Jenneau in the BVI with my husband in 2015 for 7 days. I'm looking for a laid back crew that doesn't take themselves too seriously but is also a little competitive. I really enjoy sailing, I'm super keen to keep learning and want to have fun! Am available most weekends but not for the Wednesday races.

Crewing Experience:

I was a crew member for about six months on a 26 foot Farr called Therapy in Sydney Harbour about three years ago. The skipper taught me from scratch and I loved it. Lots or jib work, a little bit of spinnaker. I'm well out of practice now but keen to take things up again if you'll have me.

My name is Kevin, 36 years old, French background, living in Brisbane for 6 years now.

I have good sailing experience with beach cats (I own a Hobie 14), and I am now actively seeking to expand my skills on bigger yachts. I have been crewing for holiday trips, but never raced before.

I am fit, positive, a good listener, eager to learn!

Fiona Hunt-Armstrong

Currently living in Hervey bay, I am now looking to crew at weekends if possible and can travel down. If I can get the chance to get out on the water would be great. If anyone needs an extra crew regularly or even if just from time to time that would be terrific. I am also fit and agile to move around the boat at speed if needed. I have also used a trapeze.
Please contact me if there are any crews needed.
Happy to share my round of the drinks after!!!

Crewing Experience:

Hello I am regular crew on a Young 88 (29ft) in Christchurch, New Zealand. I am here in Brisbane for work until just after Easter and I would love to get out sailing whilst I am here. I have been crewing mainly as a trimmer in Chch for around 10 years with a few offshore trips but mainly club racing. I have also done a little on bigger boats but mainly cruising rather than racing but I was brought up dinghy sailing.
